Patient Info

Dr Frederiksen believes that informed financial consent is an integral part of the path to surgery. Once it has been determined that you require surgery, Dr Frederiksen will provide you with an Estimate of Fees, outlining surgeon costs including an approximation of out of pocket expenses.

There will be separate costs involved for the hospital, including implants and equipment and also the anaesthetic service. Dr Frederiksen will provide you with the relevant contact details to allow you to find information on other costs.

For emergency procedures, it may not be possible to provide a written Estimate of Fees. Dr Frederiksen will endeavour to provide you with as much information as possible.

Of course, things may change during an operation, as such the Estimate of Fees is an approximation only and therefore the final bill may be different to the initial estimate. An example of this is when a patient presents with a cut on their finger. Clinical examination and investigations will determine what structures are thought to be damaged, however this may be subtly different at the time of operation.
